THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
News not exactly caluculated to soothe the
nerves of college students came out this week in
the form of a statement by Brig. Gen. Guy N.
Henntager. The general said that at least some
college draft deferments might have to be can
celled because of the rapidly decreasing supply
of manpower for the draft
All Americans naturally want to do as much
as they can to promote the defense of their
country. When there is a clear and present need,
there is little question in anybody's mind as to
the proper course of action.
There are, however, several questions which
arise. Reports have come back from several camps
that conditions are greatly overcrowded and that
men have to wait a long period of time before
getting into schooL If this is so, why are men being
inducted at such a high rate?
Defense authorities make much of the fact that
University men are vitally needed for leadership
positions. But there are any number of men who
are being placed in positions for which they had
no previous experience. And some of them were
well-equipped in other fields. There are bound
to be mistakes, but sometimes it looks as if they
were made too frequently.
A number of reserves in Lincoln were called
up shortly after the Korean war began and then
released a few months later without getting any
closer to combat than a stateside army camp. Maybe
this is doing some good. It's hard to say.
Tho thins that disturbs a lot of people is the
fact that once we are armed to the teeth, what
are we going to do with all the service men if.
there is no war? It is fine to be prepared.; but
what do we do with all the preparations if there
is no war? We would have a huge standing army
with little to do but stand, i
Another thing that disturbs many people is the
increasing amount of money being spent on mill
.tary preparation. The military is becoming more
and more powerful in American life. The pre
World War II soldier was Considered, for the most
part, as somebody who couldnt get any other job.
Now, the military man is greatly admired. The
United States has never been a nation dominated
by the military. Many people believe it would be
a mistake to start now.
Governor Peterson has suggested the possi
bility of setting up training for the young men of
the nation in the colleges and high schools of
America. It might be a plan which would be more
practical and certainly less expensive than induc
tion of an individual for, periods of two to four
years. Certainly much of the training could be
given right at home. There is some which cannot
be given at home, but there are basic things which
can be taught in the classroom. It doesn't make
too much difference whether that classroom is in
a service camp or at home.
If the service really needs college students, j
the vast majority would be clad to serve. But
is such service a matter of life or death for the
Ten Years Ago
It was just ten years ago when so many of
us heard the calm voice of a radio announcer
"We interrupt this program to bring you an im
portant news event-" And we learned that the fuse
which set off the most horrible of modern wars
"World War II was lit The Japanese had attacked
From that minute on for five terrifying
years we lived in continual consciousness of
war and its ramifications. If we had brothers or
sisters, other relatives or friends overseas, we
lived in constant fear we would be the next to
ret the telegram starting: "... we regret to in
form yon . . Many of us experienced the feel
We began reading of discouraging losses in the
South Pacific and of disheartening defeats on the
European front And the casualty list grew and
the nation mobilized for war. Parents and friends
became air raid wardens and we had trial black
outs. Industry expanded and we set production
records unequalled in the history of the world.
Popular song hits turned to war themes "Coming
In on a Wing and a Prayer," "Goodnight Soldier,"
"Johnny Doughboy" remember?
Eventually headlines became a little more
encouraging. We read about D-Day that mem
orable day in June 1944 when allied troops
landed on the French coast for the invasion. We
beard about the African campaign and the
bloody, slow drive toward Rome. In the South
Pacific we began to believe General Mac Arthur
was making good his promise to return to the
Philippines, and we recaptured the islands where
we first were forced to withdraw.
' V-E day in 1945 left us free to concentrate ef
forts in the Pacific. In August soon after the
atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima allied and
Japanese officials met on the battleship Missouri
to sign declarations ending the fighting.
Today Yanks and Nippons rub sholders in
Japan. They have baseball games and products are
sold in this country bearing "Made in Occupied
Japan." Yes, that war is over.
It seems a little futile to spend five years in
bloody conflict to send just five years later Amer
ican troops to another battle area. But beyond
the immediate pessimism there is a more favor
Our enemy no longer is the axis and today we
face communism which promises to be just as
terrifying as former enemies. We cannot lose faith.
We have an International body dedicated to
promotion of international peace and security
the United Nations. Its record in the social and
economic field is encouraging and we should
remember that war must be stopped in minds of
men. Qauses which motivate these minds must
be eliminated. We formed a peace treaty with
Japan which is revolutionary to past treaties.
No longer did we, as the victorious, demand un
reasonable war reparations and privileges.
We eventually are gaining support of other free
nations .to rally against the forces of communism,
and the UN is making a military stand against
Truly, the world offers no promising picture
today. But on the horizon there appears a new
faith and new courage to fight causes and indica
tions of war. We know how terrible wars can and
would be in the future.
Our efforts must be directed toward elimin
ation of any factors that might encourage future
conflicts. To this end we must strive or our end
will be forthcoming. There Is no better time to
recognise this than on the anniversary of Pearl
In the words of Aristotle: "The causes of war
are profound, but the occasions of war are slight"

Is the Rev. Lyle K. Anderson, student pastor of
the Evangelical United Brethren, city campus.)
Luke 2:14 "Glory to God in the highest, and
on earth peace among men with whom He is well
Much has been said in the past generation about
a basis for a Just and enduring peace. The sug
gested "Four Freedoms" provide excellent material
for such a quest The Treaty of Peace signed re
cently with Japan gives room for encouragement
as to the manner in which a victorious people
shoirld deal with a defeated people.
But there Is one thing of which I am per
sonally convinced: peace must spring from the
"grass roots" of a people. And that movement
must be so strong that political and economic
leaders will be compelled to lay aside selfish
reasons for fostering war and be compelled to
pay attention to the wishes of the people.
It is probably true that the so-called "common"
people of every nation want peace. However, in the
face of present day conditions, it must also be true
that the "common" people are either unable or,
unwilling to make the sacrifices that will produce j
peace for all the world. Even the "common" people j
seem to be guided by the motive of getting what
the other fellow has by means fair or foul.
Yet our only hope for world peace lies in the
bosoms of these very folk such as yon and me.
The message of God centuries ago was "And on
earth peace among men with whom be is well
pleased." Men of avarice, ill-will, and godless
ness will never bring the world to a dawn of
peace. Peace will rise. first of all among men
with whom God is well pleased men who have
learned the lessons of "good will'" in their every
day walk life.
When a man has acquired the ability to live in
peace with God and one other fellow man, he has
found the key to peace on earth for all mankind.
The success with which he can add additional men
to his circle determines how long that peace will
be in coming. In the end it is up to you it is up
to me! Dare one of us fail?

In Englcwood, the local telephone exchange look, pretty much
like the telephone building in any other town.
And Englcwood's telephones seem just the same as the twenty

Bat fnere'i a difference ...
You can pick up a telephone in Englcwood and dial San Francisco
telephone numbers direct!
In fact, you can dial any one of eleven million telephone numbers
in thirteen widely scattered areas from coast to coast
That's what makes Englewood different the new kind of Long
